See How Braces Work
Braces consist of brackets, wires, and bands that gently and precisely apply pressure to teeth to shift them into alignment. The typical patient experiences fully straightened teeth in 18 to 24 months. For patients interested in a more discreet orthodontic option, our orthodontists also offer Invisalign®.
What to Expect with Braces A Treatment Timeline
Orthodontic emergencies are unusual, but our team is always available in case you need orthodontic care on short-notice. The most common orthodontic emergencies are dislodged brackets or wires, which should be fixed as quickly as possible so that you don't lose any progress in your treatment. If your braces should ever suffer damage, give our office a call.
Orthodontics for All Ages
Our focus on family-friendly dentistry extends to our orthodontic care. We are happy to provide braces to children, teens, and adults if it is the right solution for their dental needs.
In general, the earlier in life you can get your child started with orthodontics, the better. By providing pediatric dentistry and addressing alignment issues early in a child's dental development, we can move the teeth more easily and prevent the development of more significant issues in the future.
Our dentists and team members are excellent with children and take great joy in equipping little ones for a lifetime of superior dental health. If you think it's time for an orthodontist to look at your child's smile, contact us today.
